Moreno vows to win his place back

Fit-again Liverpool full-back Alberto Moreno is relishing the opportunity to regain his place in Jurgen Klopp's first-team plans.

The Spaniard lost his place to Andy Robertson when he suffered an ankle injury in the 7-0 Champions League victory over Spartak Moscow in December.

Moreno had been Klopp's first-choice left-back in the opening four months of the campaign but Robertson, who moved to Anfield from Hull City last summer, has shone in the position in the last few weeks.

"It's always tough to get your place in the first team at Liverpool," said Moreno.

"Obviously, as a result of my injury, Robertson has taken his chance and grabbed it with both hands. But I'm training really hard now and determined to do all that I possibly can through hard work to try and win my place back.

"You've got to be absolutely honest and sincere and say that he's doing really well. He's put in some great performances and played some great matches."

Liverpool take on West Brom in the fourth round of the FA Cup on Saturday and are 4/5 to keep a clean sheet against the Baggies and 13/2 to win the match 3-0. Meanwhile, Klopp's team are 12121/1 to win the FA Cup outright this season.
